Understanding the Program:
What is mentorship?
University of Idaho Vandal Mentorship Program pairs Vandal alumni with current student mentees during the spring semester to develop a mentoring relationship. Mentorship is a process in which an experienced individual helps another person develop their goals and skills through ongoing, supportive one-on-one conversations and learning exercises.
The role of the student mentee is to engage and participate in the process with their mentor to gain guidance around career development and exploration, goal setting and decision-making.
The role of the alumni mentor is to engage and participate in the process with their mentee by providing insight, guidance and support based on personal experience in career and academic pursuits.
